    If he sold 700 000 albums but only earned 1 million dollars, then Allkpop is claiming that each album cost less than 1,5 USD to buy? That's not possible. An album never costs that little! Allkpop, what is the correct number here?

    it's true that each album cost less than 1.5 USD on the QQ Music Platform--it's 10 Chinese yuan which is around 1.47 USD. This is how much digital albums usually retail for in China.

    wow. so basically album sales gain you almost no cash at all (Since the cost of an album is probably around 0,5 USD and then the distributor in China and the label gets the rest)... Amazing how cheap it is to buy albums in China!
